After sending her parents and children to the high-speed train, Essie drove to the private detective agency.
"Mr. Xu, we meet again so soon."
"Miss Essie, please let me know if I can help you." Said detective Garman smilingly.
"I want you to help me find a person." Said Essie as she took out a photo from her pocket.
"I'll try my best," said Garman, looking at the photo.
At first, she just wanted to have a try, but a few days later, she received the news.
"Are you sure you have found her?" She could not believe that they had looked for her for several months, but had not found her. How could he find her in only a few days?
"I have seen her in person. It's her." Said Garman on the phone.
Essie were overjoyed. She immediately asked Malcolm to follow detective Garman to a small village in E Town.
This village was called Dave Village. It was located downstream. There were only more than eighty families. Most of them worked in the city, leaving only the old and children. They didn't speak a Mandarin language and didn't know how to surf the Internet either. They only work on the ground or eat and sleep every day.
They approached an old and shabby house made of bricks, in which the voices of girls and children could be faintly heard. When they pushed the door of the shaky yard open, they saw a tall and strong woman washing clothes by the sink. Beside her, there was a little girl standing with a worn and dirty doll in her arms. It seemed that she had just picked it up from a trash can.
Although the woman dressed like a poor village girl, Malcolm still recognized her at the first sight. "Alice!" He rushed over excitedly.
"Sis..." as soon as her tears spilled over her eyes, Essie ran to her and embraced Alice in her arms. "I knew you were still alive, and I knew you would be all right. I've been looking for you for a long time, and finally I found you."
The woman froze. There was no excitement or joy of seeing her family, only a look of loss, as if she did not know them at all. "Who are you?" She asked.
Shocked, Essie and Malcolm looked at each other at the same time and asked, "sister, don't you know us?" She asked in surprise.
"Who are you to her?" A woman's voice came from the room, and then a middle-aged woman walked out. Although her accent was not standard, she could be understood.
"I'm her sister, and her friend is next to me. We came here to find her." Essie said and asked, "How is my sister? Why doesn't she know us? "
"She doesn't remember anything. She even doesn't know who she is and what her name is." The middle-aged woman sighed.
"How long has she been here?" Malcolm asked.
"For several months. When I was washing my clothes with my mother-in-law by the river that day, I saw a woman float over from the water. She was holding a piece of wood and it seemed that she was still alive. My mother-in-law and I got her out of the water together. I wanted to ask where she lived and drive her home, but she doesn't know anything and my mother-in-law is so kind that she kept her with us. " The middle-aged woman described the scene at that time.
Essie didn't think too much about it. As long as her sister was alive, nothing else mattered to her.
She gave the family a large amount of money as her gratitude.copy right hot novel pub
